brand new consciousness. unfortunately, it really hasn't shocked us into a consciousness. every year, illegal handguns on the streets of our cities are killing black, brown, boys and girls. and no one is doing a dan thing about that. english they're practicing a policy of containment. if we did meaningful things, like improving the early childhood education,er health care, all those kinds of things that really put hope into people's lives, we could do something. but on the other, there are just simply types of weapons, styles of weapons, that should not be in the hands of civilians. and certainly everyone, including people like adam lanza, who was suffering from complex mental health issues, should not have access to guns. and so i think that there are some meaningful issues here that have got to be on the table. whether or not this congress or the next takes them up is up to us. it's up to us to make this move on congress. and force their hand on these things. >> and john and chris, we're looking at pictures of the victims in newton, what this is about at the end of the day. if the pressure point is not politics, john, what is it?
